    The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket is, without a doubt, an amazing device. One of the premiere AT&T 4G LTE devices, it had to be. But, with a last gen display (Super AMOLED Plus) with a pretty meager resolution, and relatively old software (Gingerbread; Read: NOT ICS), it does not tip the scale with a perfect 10.0. The battery life is on par with the majority of Android phones, and it'll get you through the day but, when compared to an iPhone, it may be a little less then impressive. Nevertheless, this device is worth buying. If your on Ma Bell, want a bleeding edge phone with some Long Term Evolution, this is one of your best bets, and a phone that I personally do not mind putting down a few Benjamin's for (even though I get my node for free w/ my purchase of a AT&T Galaxy Tab 8.9).

    The Samsung Galaxy S2 SkyRocket is an amazing phone that delivers amazing performance at LTE speeds. Having owned a Samsung Captivate previous to this, the performance is of course noticeable superior (even with the Captivate running a custom ROM).

    Overall the design is appealing and I am glad they did away with the square lines of the Captivate. The display is bright and crisp, though some have complained about screen lines on the pentile screen at low resolution. I tend to have my screen set about half way on brightness and have no issues.

    The camera could use some help, it is far better than the Captivate but I found the camera having focus issues, not a common complaint but it is my experience.

    Call quality is acceptable though could be better because the speaker just sounds tinny.

    Performance is amazing, this thing screams, though it is not running the faster chip of the SGS2, it is hardly noticeable.

    Battery life started off choppy but since I have had this a month now I can get a full day on one charge now so I can live with it. Of course I'd like longer.

    I think the SkyRocket is a solid choice if you have LTE available to you and I would recommend this phone over the SGS2 ONLY if you have LTE.

    Hope you enjoyed the review, I tried to keep at as brief as possible. ;-)
